It is great that you are adding an admin-guide book and it is surely
not your fault that there is no existing admin-guide for fanotify to add to.
However, the name of the book as well as this title are more generic than
what you describe.

You see, watching all the deleted files in a filesystem or all modified files
in a mount may also be considered as "filesystem monitoring" by some.

So my only request is that you keep the book name and title as is,
but place your content under a chapter about "filesystem error monitoring".

This way, other people can later fill the gaps.
(CC Matthew Borowski who indicated his interest in doing so)

Thanks,
Amir.
